Abstract:

Bottlenecker (n): a person who advocates for the creation or perpetuation of government regulation, particularly an occupational license, to restrict entry into his or her occupation, thereby accruing an economic advantage without providing a benefit to consumers. The Left, Right, and Center all hate them: powerful special interests that use government power for their own private benefit. In an era when the Left hates #x93;fat cats" and the Right despises #x93;crony capitalists," now there is an artful and memorable one-word pejorative they can both get behind: bottleneckers. A #x93;bottlenecker" is anyon.
